Memo To:   All Buffalo Teachers

From:         Philip Rumore, President, BTF

Date:          July 29, 2022


Subject:     Health Insurance

The article in the Buffalo News has created confusion and concern. My complete quote was not printed.


The District is attempting to remove retiree healthcare for teachers that are “hired after July 1, 2022”.


"We will not allow and they can not eliminate retiree healthcare for teachers who have retired. Retired teachers will be entitled to receive the same healthcare benefits as those they were entitled to upon retirement,” Article XXVI (2) (p73).
